Planking is a dangerous game during which a person (usually an idiot) lays down in a strange place, arms by his side, imitating a plank of wood (it has nothing to do with slave ships unless you think a slave is a piece of wood).
White college students started the planking craze on Facebook and it caught on with other social networking mediums. I actually thought planking had fizzled out on Black Twitter but I guess not.
This unfortunate sista almost got herself killed when she attempted to "plank" on a stove top and the stove fell on top of her! Check out the video after the break.
